Just got Linux Puppy 1.0.8 to boot on Dell Inspiron with 64MB RAM...
 
Now can someone help me install it on my Hard drive.

This version seems to work really well because it is the last distro with the smaller kernel. I want to wipe my hard drive and install Puppy as my only operating system. Am I being too basic to ask for help with this?? Can anyone remember back as far as 2006??

Thanks in advance

Did you try the universal installer ?

Thanks, I got it installed and it works well for me. I have a few small qlitches though.

I can't seem to get my sound to work and also can seem to get any wifi products to work. I tried a D-Link Wireless air G DWL630 and a Belkin Air G USB, to no avail. I have burnt NDISWrapper and will try to see if I can get it sorted out tonight, but I find it all a little labor intensive.

Can anyone suggest any helpful hints or bug fixes for the above?
